Kenji Kawai
True story. And I promise that it will eventually connect to my review of Kenji Kawai...      My dating skills have always left plenty to be desired. Mostly because I volunteer the …
reviewed Evolution. April 05, 2010
"Do I really come from Monkeys" That's what my seven year old nephew asked me during a trip to the zoo. As you might imagine, we were observing the monkeys when the question came from his young …
reviewed Clash of the Titans (2010). April 03, 2010
Clash of the Titans (2010 film)
 I have a movie going enjoyment-barometer that I call the Wow-O-Meter that I would like to tell you about. Don't worry, I'm not going to try and sell it to you because doggonit I can't seem to get …
reviewed Repo Men (2010 movie). March 22, 2010
REPO MEN (2010)
Many viewers will call the plot of Repo Men just plain silly and many critics already have. Indeed the idea of a corporation reclaiming life-saving organ transplants from its constituencies who cannot …
reviewed Embryo. February 22, 2010
Embryo may have unintentionally landed in the science-fiction genre. Or perhaps it was going for a less fantastical angle, choosing instead to be tempered in its speculations about where medical technology …
reviewed Royal Space Force: Wings of Honneamise. February 01, 2010
Royal Space Force: Wings of Honneamise
I've noticed that on amazon it is my animé and comic-book based film reviews that are the least well received by voters. That comes as no surprise, animé and comics are sacred cows that …
reviewed Fantastic Mr. Fox (movie). January 31, 2010
Movie: Fantastic Mr. Fox
It's always a good sign when you're an adult in a movie marketed for kids and you find yourself laughing louder than the restless children in the audience. Albeit, it's a tad embarrassing too, but a good …
reviewed Legion (2010 movie). January 25, 2010
One line saved this movie from being a complete bore for me: Dennis Quaid: "Besides, I don't even believe in God." Archangel Micahel: "That's fine. He doesn't believe in you either."   …
reviewed The Book of Eli. January 18, 2010
The Book of Eli
A quick visit to Wikipedia and I discover that Mr. Gary Oldman is starting to live up to his namesake. No offense, of course, to those over the nice round age of 50. In fact, take it as a compliment. …
reviewed Ghost in the Shell 2.0. January 13, 2010
Ghost in the Shell 2.0
Fans of Ghost in the Shell are, most likely, well aware of the re-mastered re-issue of this anime classic by director Mamoru Oshii. For those who need a little catching up, just know that Ghost in the …

The Cure: How Capitalism Can Save American Health Care
 Though it comes with a 2006 Copyright date,  Dr. David Gratzer's book "The Cure: How Capitalism Can Save American Health Care" could easily find its way in the hands of many Americans …
reviewed The Futurist. January 05, 2010
The Futurist
I have a confession to make. I was never a fan of James Cameron's movies. That isn't to say that I didn't enjoy them, only that I was never a follower of his films. Half the time I didn't even know that …
reviewed Invictus. January 04, 2010
Invictus (2009)
One thing I've noticed about a lot of Clint Eastwood's movies is that they feel as much like literature as they do cinema. I'm not sure if this is because of the source material he works from, his very …
reviewed Netflix vs. Hollywood. December 30, 2009
Netflix vs. Hollywood
Just bumped into a very interesting article on the troubles that Netflix has been having with striking a deal with Hollywood studios on providing instant viewing of recent movies. I'm a Netflix subscriber …
reviewed Avatar (2009 film). December 20, 2009
If you've seen Dances with Wolves, The Last Samurai, Glory, 10,000 BC or any movie where an indigenous population is roused to rebellion with the help of a sympathetic white defector who might also represent …
reviewed The Man Who Planted Trees. December 20, 2009
The Man Who Planted Trees
Sometimes it's nice to be wrong. I didn't think an epic story could be told in less then 2 and a half hours and still evoke a poignant sense of time. Though good film editing always condenses long durations …
reviewed Up in the Air. December 14, 2009
Up in the Air
This was a charmed movie going weekend for me. I saw two five star movies back to back. The first one kept me grounded on The Road and the second took me several thousand feet Up in the Air. In a very …
reviewed The Road (movie). December 14, 2009
The Road
From what I've seen so far, The Road, has had a limited release in the United States. Apparently, only the bigger cities are fortunate enough to have this one make the big screens. Consequently, the last …
reviewed Planet 51. December 07, 2009
Planet 51
I was reading a book about and by Japanese animation director, Hayao Miyazaki. One of his many quips that I underlined expressed his sentiment that within the first few minutes of watching most animations …
reviewed Burger King. November 30, 2009
Burger King
Hunger pangs are what made me do it. I shouldn't have done it, but I did it. Why did I do it? Because I wanted something cheap, fast and, yes, good. I wanted to be in and out. I wanted to eat my food …
reviewed The Sword of Doom. November 24, 2009
The Sword of Doom
Sorry if this sounds like a spoiler, but there's no point in recommending a movie as good as this one without giving a fair warning: Sword of Doom, originally titled The Pass of the Boddhisattva, was …
reviewed Wang Du. November 23, 2009
Wang Du
In 1992, artist Jeffrey Deitch orchestrated an exhibition titled "PostHuman" which focused on the accelerated mutations of the human body through surgery, cosmetics, drugs and other artificial …
reviewed The Men Who Stare At Goats. November 22, 2009
The Men Who Stare At Goats
I missed the first 2 or 3 minutes of this movie, as I was waiting in line at the concessions stand stocking up on Popcorn for everyone who went with me to this movie. When I came back, my friend leaned …
reviewed Evil. November 16, 2009
I recently saw and reviewed the movie 2012. Though this was my review, I have decided it is time to post the true reason I enjoyed this masterpiece and why this movie touched my shriveled heart in …
reviewed 2012 (movie). November 16, 2009
2012 (movie)
I had an interesting pre-cursor while going in to see 2012. I was with a small group of three, and I handed my tickets to the doorman, who, after ripping them and handing me back the stubs, …
reviewed The Killing of a Chinese Cookie. November 02, 2009
Okay, so I went to what felt like a miniature monthly comic-con being held at a Los Angeles animation studio called "Titmouse". This was my first time attending this small gathering and …
reviewed Law Abiding Citizen. November 01, 2009
Law Abiding Citizen
It's always a terrific pleasure to go into a movie with low or even no expectations and come out of it feeling pleasantly surprised. Such was my experience with Law Abiding Citizen. The trailer seemed …
reviewed My Wife is a Gangster. October 29, 2009
My Wife is a Gangster
Eun-Jin is a second in command Femme Fatale ganglord that is called "Big Brother" by her men. They also say "Yes, sir" even though she is a woman, but that's by force of habit. The …
reviewed Astro Boy (movie). October 26, 2009
If you go into AstroBoy without knowing a great deal about the history of the original and its creator, then you may find this remake to be Pinocchio 2.0. You also might find the up-and-down-and-up-again …
reviewed Good Hair. October 21, 2009
Good Hair
Chris Rock may have been the only person who could have pulled off this documentary. Hair is a touchy topic for African-American women as made evident by both this documentary and its trailer, and Chris …
reviewed Black Dynamite. October 17, 2009
Black Dynamite
Superman, Batman, Spiderman and Ironman are cool. Kick-ass, even. But they don't have what Black Dynamite has: melanin. And because "Black Dynamite" has it, and because he has a mean 'fro, and …
reviewed Avalon (movie). October 17, 2009
Avalon (movie)
Avalon is by far one of the most accessible of film's by Mamoru Oshii. Like many of his other animations, specifically Ghost in the Shell 1 and 2 and The Sky Crawlers, Avalon employs a deliberate pacing …
reviewed Surrogates. October 13, 2009
Surrogates Movie Poster
If nothing else, Surrogates has proven that, toupe or sans-toupe, I'm still a Bruce Willis fan. While the premise of Surrogates certainly intrigued me, in the end it was knowing that Bruce and Ving were …
reviewed Capitalism: A Love Story. October 05, 2009
Capitalism: A Love Story
Capitalism: A Love Story is nothing short of a battle cry, and quite frankly, at this day and age that's about the only thing such a documentary can be. Had it been a documentary exclusively about the …
reviewed The Informant. October 02, 2009
movie poster
The Informant could have very easily been another installment to the Drama-Thriller category. And it would have probably found a special place among its predecessors. After all, it's based on a real guy …
reviewed The Big Picture: Who Killed Hollywood?. September 30, 2009
William Goldman
Unlike Directors, Actors, and even Producers, screenwriters get a small sliver of Hollywood's fame pie if they even get any of it at all. Within the industry itself, sure, there are a few names that hold …
reviewed Religulous. September 21, 2009
Funny how the buzz around a person can be so ubiquitious that you know the name without having a clue on who the person is. Up until Religulous I had never seen Bill Maher on TV, and yet somehow …
reviewed 9. September 12, 2009
Call me crazy, but right away this movie seemed like something that belonged in the Wachowski Brother's The Animetrix. The dark, cerebral mood combined with the green aesthetics made me think of "The …

It Takes a Genome: How a Clash Between Our Genes and Modern Life is Making Us Sick
Barack Obama introduced to the U.S. Senate "The Genomics and Personalized Medicine Act of 2006". Greg Gibson, author of "It Takes a Genome", advises us that the title of this Act alone …
reviewed Welcome to Macintosh. September 07, 2009
Welcome to Macintosh
Here is a documentary that is so polished and pristine that if not for the footage in the closing credits, you'd swear that this was something that came right out of Apple's PR camp. The aesthetics of …
